Hi,
I am having good 7+ years in J2EE (continuous), but for last 7 months due to unexpected circumstances, I am not working.
I worked last 5 yrs with IBM GBS (originally India), of which last 3 yrs with IBM Canada.

I have PR of canada now and came back to India... due to some personal pending things...

now I got this 7 months GAP, for last 1 months I am preparing for the interview...

so Folks what you feel Should I show the GAP or I can put some project I did earlier and get experience letter from my friend's company.(they will back reference check also)

I know Honesty matters but if GAP is definitely going to affect my shortlisting of my CV in companies ... then Its better to show some experience as I have enough industry knowledge to cover up.

I am planning to move back to Canada soon

Your honest and most important practical (might not be ethical) inputs will be appreciated ...

so does it matters in India/Candian companies with 7 yrs of exp.

Honest question - Did you seriously expect someone in this forum would post a reply encouraging you to cheat ?

When you decide to cheat, you are proposing to gain an unfair advantage over the rest of us that are clean. You also robbed someone else of a job opportunity when they had valid experience. I dont see how any discussion on this topic will help you in your decision. Nothing constructive can come from this thread either. I'm locking it.
